1 - go to transgaming.com
2 - go to download section, then cvs tree
3 - read the agreement
4 - To checkout a new CVS respository:

1. cvs -dserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
2. When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
3. cvs -z3 -dserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

5 - cd winex
6 - ./configure
7 - make depend && make
8 - make install

10 easy steps. have fun.

There is a script that does that here and installs it and everything, and I had no problems using this, it's all automated. Just sit back and let it install.

ok well heres the problem....
the first time i tried it, it worked with no trouble....got into the configuring stage then showed an error (outdated drivers) i downloaded these drivers and went into it again using both of ur metods and every time i type the script in, it skips to the 3rd stage (configuring) for about 2 seconds then the whole te5rminal window closes. using the regular way, when it asks for the password i type in cvs and it quit goes right back to the shell prompt so i tried typing in a wrong password and it said it was incorrect....but when its right it justs quits....what am i doing wrong?

delete your hidden .cvs folder in /home/username and try again, preferably not in X mode -- use CTRL+ALT+F6 and login first.

Just a quick question following on this topic. I understand the description here to get the CVS version for linux, but is there anyway i can download on a Win Xp machine and then copy it across and install on my linux box?

I'll tell you why i run mandrake 9.1 at home but i don't have a net connection there, so i use the net at my folks place but they run XP.

Please guys help me out. Not being able to game and lan with linux is the only things that are stopping me from moving from XP.

There is a Windows Application called TortiseCVS that should allow you to download it on windows.
